Through the Purple Haze Challenges #7 FUNKY GIRLS AND BOYS AND KENNY K

OOOOk-lahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain,
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet, When the wind comes right behind the rain
OOOOk-lahoma, Ev'ry night my honey lamb and I, Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk makin' lazy circles in the sky.

Hahaha!  Those are some of the lyrics to the song Oklahoma! from the Broadway musical and movie (1955) with the same title! I must give proper credit to the writers Rodgers and Hammerstein for the song!!! When Fiona got a sneak peak of my card, she immediately thought of that movie.  Now Fiona lives in Scotland and I always thought that Oklahoma! was a US thing----just goes to show how little I know!! But except for the oil rigs and the numerous twisters, Iowa is not that different than the state of Oklahoma!!

Okay...... back to the Through the Purple Haze Challenges!!!

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges

This is week #7 already. Time is going way too fast now.  Each week is a little bit closer to winter and I DON'T like that!!! Anyway.......

This week we are excited to tell you that Kenny K is the sponsor for our challenge!! The winner of the challenge will get three (3) digis from Kenny K!!!!  The theme for the challenge is Funky Girls and Boys! Use a Kenny K image if you have one!!

My card features an image from Kenny K called Farmer's Daughter! I used a sentiment from Unity Stamp Company "Smile and Forget Everything".

Here's the full card!
I colored my Farmer's Daughter with copic markers.
After coloring my image, I cut my image out and used some pop dots to mount it onto some really cool plaid decorated paper that I added some "ink spots" to via a rubber stamp from Ann-ticipations using pink Colorbox Pigment Ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I finished off with a polka dot ribbon from my stash and added the sentiment!
Be sure to hop on over to Through the Purple Haze Challenges and see what my teammates came up with for the Funky Girls and Boys theme using more Kenny K images.
Have a great week!
